Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

Apparently, a Russian funeral is not complete without a band playing classical music standards, and a funeral band is not complete without a drummer. In this road-comedy, Alesandr Polovtsev plays one such drummer, a man with an incurable wanderlust, who wordlessly wanders into and out of more peculiar situations in this one movie than most people do in a lifetime. He also finds an infinity of different functions for his almost human drum, which is given to panting after its owner has taken it on too long a walk.
